Food Programs

All food programs are provided free of charge to anyone who is hungry, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, or socioeconomic group.

Dining Room Meals

We serve nutritious meals in our dining room, to our residents and guests as well as individuals and families from the community.

Mobile Kitchens

Our Mobile Kitchens and Mobile Pantries serve in impoverished neighborhoods in Bridgeport. Volunteers serve with encouraging words and prayer to guests who are unable to come to our Main Campus.

Weekday Food

In Coastal Connecticut, many people struggle to put food on the table because 70% of their paycheck goes to pay rent. Our Pantry offers fresh produce, dry goods, meat, and dairy items to enable them to feed their families.

Great ThanksGiving Project

Our largest outreach of the year! Nearly 5,000 families in Stamford, Norwalk, Bridgeport, Ansonia, Waterbury and New Haven receive a turkey and bag of fixings along each year during this annual event.

Did You Know?

The Mission provided 900,645 meals in 2023 through the Pantry, Café meals, and the Great ThanksGiving Project.
